Stage Buddy The Insiders Guide To Theater Reviews The Traveler!
the best surprise is saved for last, and apparently it’s effect is so powerful that (at least in my performance and the one before it) children from the audience come instinctively to the traveler’s aid. As a long-time theatre-goer familiar with the art of making something look spontaneous when it’s not, I assumed this was a plant. I was wrong. There was simply something so moving in Bowers’ performance that a young child felt drawn to actively participate in his story. If that’s not the only thing better than a standing ovation, I don’t know what is.
